Current Obsession: Nexxus Color Assure Glossing Tonic

Current Obsession: Nexxus Color Assure Glossing Tonic(Source: Nexxus)When I decided to go blonder for spring, I knew I'd have to change up my haircare routine as well. My first thought went to which shampoo and conditioner to use to stave off the brassiness that's sure to eventually haunt my strands. But I soon realized I would need a color-protecting product for outside the shower as well. Welcome Nexxus Color Assure Glossing Tonic ($17.99) to the picture.

Another member of the Color Assure family from Nexxus, the weightless white orchid extract-infused tonic comes out in a quick-dry mist that instantly boosts shine and hair luminosity. The orchid extract present throughout the whole Color Assure line helps seal and protect hair strands and repels water to keep colored hair vibrant. At the advice of my colorist, I'm using the Glossing Tonic pre- and post-styling. A few spritzes on my damp strands prior to blow drying or straightening not only gives shine, but it helps protect my blonde against fading caused by heat damage. Following styling, I'm also adding a couple more sprays to my ends to boost my mane's shine. 

After almost a month post-coloring, my hair is vibrant as ever and the compliments keep rolling in. Now who would have thought my just-from-the-salon color would outlast spring in New York?
